    Q & A

    2) How old are you, what city and area do you live in?

    I am 19 and currently living Angra do Heroismo – Portugal.

    3) Please tell us a bit about yourself (job, school, hobbies, other)?

    I'm a student and work as a notary assistant , I recently finished high school and probably go to college (computer engineer). In the vast world of internet I’m one of the four owner of a Portuguese community called FancyStab, specifically, I’m the CFO and the guy that helps the member with reports (scams or not) and any other help they need. Out of the internet I’m just a ordinary guy that likes to drink coffe and go out.

    4) Why do you want to be an SR mod?

    I want to be a moderator for several reasons. The first and the most important, helping to keep the community clean and trustworthy. Second reduce the payload that you guys have. Last but not least, i love the theme (scam) because it's very similar to real life ( Telexfree and other types of real scam).

    5) How much time can you donate to SR per week?

    I can donate easily 14 to 16 hours and in good weeks i can donate about 18 to 22 hours. Weekends also included.

    6) Do you have any prior admin experience, or similar, and please elaborate?

    Yes I do. I has a moderator on a community called “FRAGXL ” (big community on Portugal, it’s now closed ). On FRAGXL I was a moderator of the forum and a social networks manager. Now I'm a chief financial officer in a small Portuguese community called “FancyStab” and I also deal with any scam report expose to us.

    I don’t have many game hours dedicated to TF2 because I usually like to dedicate my time to scam reports and trading (not on servers).

    7) What do you foresee as challenges as an SR mod?

    I can think in some, like flame wars, backlog complaints and some improperly formatted reports. I'm prepared to deal with these challenges.

    8) Can you accept the fact that you must enforce per SR rules and guidelines?

    Yes I can.

    9) Do you feel you will have any issues denying appeals or accepting reports?

    No.

    10) Do you handle instruction and direction well?

    Yes, I’m here to follow all instructions.

    11) What do you feel are your personal shortcomings or attributes you can improve on?

    I need to improve my sociability, it's not that i don't have several people that i talk, it’s just that i take a while to trust people and getting comfortable with them. Also feel like i give too much value to an agreement because usually in TF2 people are more interested in making profit instead of being trustworthy, that's a thing that i really hate on TF2 and also in real life.

    12) What contributions do you believe you will be able to make to SR?

    I think that i can bring three things: knowledge, Portuguese language (if necessary i can translate all Portuguese threads) and huge dedication. For me the most important is the dedication that said I’m a very dedicated person and I really want to share it with SR.

    13) Do you have any interest in eventually becoming an SR Admin? If so, what kinds of things would you like to do? (Example- community relations, appeals, scam reports, etc.)

    Yes, I do. I would like to deal with scam reports, like I said before it’s what I really like to do.

    14) Please list all alternate Steam Accounts by their ID64.

    I have two alts and only I use them. The first is going to be the VIP bot for my community (the bot is still not operational), the second it’s an old account to run a side group for my previous community “fragxl”.

    Yes.

    16) Have you read the Duties of SR Moderators post and understand it?

    Yes.

    17) Do you have any questions?

    No.

    Tio is a very trustable person, who makes many scam reports on the FoG forums. He is active in hunting down scammers, and I believe that he should be a staff.

    Just to make an update. I step down from my portuguese community due to the lack of communication with the team and lack of motivation from them to make the project continue. My online time now it's dedicated to trades , a bit of game play and SR.
    Also i'm gonna to Oporto (college) so my internet access, this 2 weeks is going to be conditioned. Just a reminder, I'm in college but I'm still able to donate the time i stated on my application (even a bit more).

    I would like to vouch for Jose. He knows the ins and outs on how scams are done, and is very proactive at reporting scammers/shady individuals. Hopefully he'll have a chance to get brought onto SR.

    I vouch for this kind fella. I myself would love to see Jose working together with other SR staff. He is an individual that cares for the safety and efficiency of the community and would be a great asset to the SR team.

    I vouch for José. He seems like a really dedicated person to trading. He clearly knows how SR works and is actively searching for scammers.
